In celebration with the National Zero Waste Month as mandated by Proclamation No. 760 and signing anniversary of RA 9003 known as the “Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000” last January 28, 2021, at 6 AM in the morning. The Local Government Unit Of Diffun spearheaded by MENR Office, together with other Local and National  offices like DENR, BFP, PNP, DepEd, CENRO and others, conducted a Clean Up Drive (plogging) along the National Highway from the Municipal Hall to Barangay Maria Clara and tree planting along the highway and at the Municipal Reforestation Park.

Even though there is a bit of drizzle, it didn’t stop the group to continue the simultaneous clean up drive, and in this time of pandemic the observance of health protocols are strictly observed.

As a result of the clean-up the different parties collected almost fifty sacks of rubbish along the highway and planted almost hundred seedlings.
